The Risks of Cockroach Infestations
Many people are disgusted by cockroaches because of how they look, but there’s more to be cautious of with cockroaches than simply appearances. Here are some of the risks that cockroach infestations could bring into your home:
- Diseases: Although they’re not known to be direct transmitters of disease, cockroaches can spread diseases indirectly through contamination. Cockroaches are commonly found near kitchens and waste deposits, which are fertile breeding grounds for bacteria and diseases. Any diseases or parasites that cockroaches come into contact with in these areas can then be spread to wherever else they go.
- Allergies/Asthma. Cast-off cockroach skins, dead bodies and droppings can aggravate allergies, especially in children and sensitive individuals.
- Food contamination. Cockroaches love exploring areas with food scraps and organic materials. If they come into contact with any exposed food or ingredients, then they could contaminate it with whatever bacteria or diseases they are carrying with them. In some situations, this could lead to food poisoning or serious illness.
- Bites: Although cockroaches rarely bite humans (they prefer food scraps and other organic materials), there are instances where they will. These cases are more likely to occur in extreme infestations and when food supply is limited. Their bites can cause swelling and irritation, which could lead to minor wound infections if left untreated.
These risks show that cockroaches can be more problematic than they appear, and it becomes even worse the more cockroaches there are on your property.
Signs of Cockroach Infestations
Because cockroaches are mostly nocturnal, they are usually difficult to find. But there are warning signs that you can watch out for to help you identify an infestation:
Although seeing a cockroach or two doesn’t always mean that your home is infested, repeated sightings of multiple cockroaches often indicate the presence of established cockroach nests.
Large groups of cockroaches often produce a strong, pungent smell that could overpower your rooms, especially if they have been there for a long time. This smell could worsen and become even stronger the more these cockroaches multiply.
Clusters of cockroach droppings are often tell-tale signs that there’s a cockroach infestation on your property. These droppings often look like coffee or pepper grounds, although their size and appearance may vary depending on the type of cockroach.
Cockroach egg cases (also known as ‘oothecae’) are clear signs that a cockroach infestation is growing on your property (if it hasn’t already). Each egg casing can contain up to 50 cockroach eggs, which means that they can multiply quickly if left untreated.
What to Do if You Have a Cockroach Problem
If you think you have a cockroach infestation in your home, it’s important to get professional help as soon as you can.
DIY-fixes are often not enough to get rid of cockroach nests, especially if you don’t have the right tools and knowledge for removing them. Professional cockroach management can identify nests on your property (especially those that you can’t see from outside) and apply the right treatments to get rid of them completely.
If you’re not sure whether your property has a cockroach problem, then we recommend getting a pest inspection. A professional pest inspection can identify any issues with cockroaches (or other pests) that your property may have as well as your best options for removing them.
Whether your cockroach problem is urgent or not, it’s important to get rid of them sooner rather than later. Cockroaches are aggressive breeders that can multiply quickly, so it’s always best to treat them early before they get out of hand.
